4 Solutions to Bad Breath

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, affects 50 percent of adults at some point in their lives. It can cause embarrassment and anxiety which is why so many companies have created minty products to temporarily mask bad breath. If you are experiencing symptoms, here are 4 tips to get rid of bad breath.

Brush and Floss

It is best to start off by thoroughly brushing your teeth and flossing. Flossing will help remove remaining bacteria and food particles out from between your teeth that could cause bad breath.

Clean Your Tongue

Next, clean your tongue with a tongue scraper. Your tongue harbors bacteria which, if not properly cared for, can cause bad breath as well.

Sugar-Free Gum

For a quick fix, maybe after a garlic filled dinner, chew sugar-free gum. The sugar-free gum will freshen your breath and help remove bacteria from your mouth.

Stay Hydrated!

Be sure to drink plenty of water to prevent dry mouth. When you don’t produce enough saliva, it is harder to wash away bacteria and food particles that are stuck between your teeth. Staying hydrated and brushing regularly will help wash out the bacteria and food particles that linger.

Experiencing bad breath for a long period of time means that you could be encountering a more serious issue such as a sinus condition, gastric reflux, diabetes, liver or kidney disease. Call your OC Healthy Smiles dentist at (714) 545-0484 to have your dentist properly examine and treat your halitosis.
